ACME SHEPHERDS MOUTH WHISTLE
Acme Shepherds Mouth Whistle
Choose Nickel or Plastic
Herding made easy with the Acme Shepherds Mouth Whistle! The shepherds whistle, sometimes called the "lip" whistle, has a clear tone that travels long distances. Acme is the maker of the original herding dog whistles; these traditional dog whistles are used by the English Shepherd to command his faithful sheep dog at long distances to round up and bring home the straying sheep. Ten out of ten Border Collies agree, this is the only whistle they want to work with!
Keep in mind you will need to practice with the shepherd's whistle to get the hang of it, and you will want to do that out of earshot of your dog.
There are two types of shepherds whistles, the metal and the plastic models.
The nickel shepherd’s whistle has a clearer tone and carries over greater distances than the plastic. It also has a classic, retro design that ties the 19th century shepherd to the 21st century shepherd. The nickel model is the most popular seller, however, some purchasers are sensitive to the taste of the metal. Choose plastic if you are sensitive to metal.
